Just a Few Things…

Some All of my days usually do not go as planned. That’s ok, as I think it adds a little excitement to life {at least that is what I tell myself}. With that said the project I had planned for today will have to be left to tomorrow, which is ok, because it gives me a chance to write this post and tell you about a few things…

I’ll be working with CSN Stores in the next couple of weeks doing a review and giveaway. I have seen CSN stores on many different sites and was trilled when they contacted me to check them out and pass along the chance for one of my readers to do the same. CSN Stores is an online one stop shop consisting of more than 200 different retailers and millions of different items. You’ll find beautiful furniture, including gorgeous dining room tables, lovely home decor, cookware and just about every and anything else you can imagine! I haven’t figured out what I’ll be choosing yet, though I have honestly spent hours checking them out {here}…so stay tuned.

I planned to have another bath project up tonight but I was side tracked by my hubby with a fun outdoor project and before I knew it I ran out of daylight and my project was still drying. This picture is a little preview of what we were working on outside – sure to provide hours of fun for our little guy {and me too}. Details will follow!

The deck table and stool plans are coming for those of you who are anxiously waiting. {I do appreciate all the emails and comments} It is simply a matter of drawing the diagrams and writing it up. Right now they are a bunch of chicken scratch on a notepad. I will have them up by the end of next week for all of those who have written me telling me you have already prepared your husbands for a weekend of fun!

I have received quite a few questions on where to find the Foam Alphabet Stamps that I have used for a lot of different projects, including the Playroom Wall Art {found here}. I purchased mine locally at Joanne Fabrics and I know the local Michaels Craft Store carries them as well. They are in the scrapbooking ‘stamp’ section and I have also seen them located along with the stenciling supplies too. I know a few of you are still having problems finding them locally so here are few that can be ordered online. They are made by Simply ® Stamps and come in an array of different fonts and sizes.

  1. I spent hours on CSN trying to figure out what to get. I was the lucky recipient of a $60 gift code from All Thingz Related and ended up get a knife sharpener and a doll crib as a christmas gift for my daughter. It was so hard to decide what to get.


  2. CSN is great, aren’t they? It will be fun to see what you decide on. Your deck is looking awesome!

  3. Love your blog!! And I have a question – I would love to know the source of your dining room table and chairs! I am looking for something new and yours caught my eye – I need something that will seat eight and yours definitely caught my eye! Thanks so much!!

  4. Forgot my email – arlamowilwand at gmail.com. Thanks a million!

  5. I think CSN has neat things. Looking forward to see what you review! :-)

  6. I like CSN too- Little Kid’s white metal bed came from here and she loves it. I have my eye on a white bookshelf right now……:D
